, a deadly mix in chicago that's getting more dire by the day. the city marked a grim milestone this week, 500 murders so far this year. it was a shooting on the city's west side thursday that pushed the number to 500. police say a 40-year-old man was shot in the head outside a convenience store. another troubling number, 270, that's the number of children who have been killed by guns in chicago in the last five years. back to this year's 500 homicides. that's up 50% from last year. it is the highest the murder rate has been in the city since 2008. it was 512 then. what's going on here? some say it's a police problem, that chicago police are simply outnumbered and outgunned. unable to handle the influx of kids who want to kill kids to make some cash or to climb the social ladder in chicago gang life. or is it a gun problem? the city has some of the toughest laws on the books. but the chicago police department says 87% of the homicides this year are a result of gun violence. so let's talk. joining me tonight for this conversation, t.o. hardiman. and harold pollock joins us as well. welcome

and then i asked other world leaders what they think about him. >> looking live at new york city, home of the united nations, world leaders from 193 countries are gathering for the annual meeting of the general assembly. president mahmoud ahmadinejad will address the assembly on wednesday. he had some blistering words today. >> you have been condemned very vociferously in america for a comment you have said to have made, that you wanted israel to be wiped off the map, wiped off the face of the earth. there have been many different interpretations what you said. you have disputed the meaning that was then translated from the original farsi. let me give you the opportunity to say exactly what you did say and to say exactly what you did mean. >> translator: we have been condemned in the united states for many things, for having deposed a dictator with the revolution, for having sought freedom and free elections, for not allowing our oil and national treasure to leave our country freely and for having stood up to very dangerous terrorists in the region, for having stood up against saddam h
't understand why there is there has only been one shooting in my city who has acquired a gun legally. >> i really want to pull the debate back to a pragmatic center to move the country forward and make it a lot safer. there's one shooting in my city where the gun was obtained legally. most of the crimes are because people who are not qualified to get guns, got guns. so to improve the system, background checks, and the one more mental health point i want to make, there are 19 states almost where there's less than a hundred people they've registered in the system as mentally uncapable because states aren't even turning over this information. if wooy shared information, we could do a much better job as a country. >> you lost your faurthd in the sikh temple shooting. i don't mean to be disrespectful to those who don't hold my view. what is your reaction, you're a gun orn, i believe. >> i have a gun. i was in the army, rotc. worked with an m-16. saw everything. and those guns aren't meant for protection. they're meant for anileation. to deter somebody, you could deter somebody with a knife, lik
kick, and it's very high velocity. and it doesn't belong on the streets of our city. and it doesn't belong in a place where a 20-year-old like this particular 20-year-old could get ahold of it and go in and do what he did. and this makes me very angry. >> what do you say to those who say i have my second amendment rights. i'm entitled to bear arms. you are not entitled to take away that right by removing these kind of weapons from the streets and from the stores. >> there is no second amendment right to bear every type of weapon that you know of. these are a certain class of weapons. they are designed to kill large numbers of people in close combat. i don't believe the second amendment covers them. the second amendment was written a long time before these -- this class of weapons was founded, merchandised, and spread all over our country. where they fall into the hands of juveniles, grievance killers, people who go into our malls, our theaters, our stores, our businesses, and now our schools and just kill people for no good reason. it's got to stop. >> tell me about the reaction y
settings, not the places that we think of as characteristically violent. we think of big cities as places where there's gun violence. and of course there is. but these kinds of shootings don't happen in big cities. they happen usually in small towns or suburbs. >> and is there a common thread in the mental health history of the boys involved in these? >> there is almost always a mental health condition. the sad thing is it's often unrecognized and untreated. so we don't know if that will be true in this case. but in most of the cases we looked at, there was after-the-fact evidence of mental disorders but no treatment. or had ever been diagnosed that's disturbing because we like to think we can recognize the symptoms. but particularly when the shooters are younger than this one, the ones we looked at were 13, 12, the signs of distinguished mental illness that are going to be so vivid if they survive into their 20s are not so easy to discern when they're 13. so sadly there is a -- there's evidence after the fact often that comes up in forensic examinations, but not the kind of evidence that
vigil that they are trying to organize right now where each town and village and city will take a moment out and spend time reflecting and maybe starting once we get through this initial shock and reflecting a little bit about our public policy positions in terms of things like gun control and how we deal with folks who are mentally disabled. once we understand this horrific tragedy that occurred. i think that conversation will be started over the next couple of weeks. >> thank you very much indeed for joining me. >> thank you, piers. >> we can't imagine what it was like in the school. sofia was there and just 8 years old. she's a student at sandy hook. she joins me now with her mother, brenda. thank you both for joining me. if i may start with you, brenda. this is every mother's nightmare. when was the first you heard about this and how did you hear? >> i received a call from the school system from the superintendent saying that there was a shooting in newtown, but didn't say it was a school. that the schools were on lockdown. i wasn't too concerned because i didn't know where it happen
